Marsul Celor Vii

In data de 8 aprilie am participat alaturi de mai multe natiuni la March of the Living People si am vizitat complexul Auschwitz-Birkenau. Acest complex este format din 3 lagare de concetrare, unde au fost exterminati de catre nazisti peste 1 milion de oameni, dintre care 10% polonezi si tigani, iar restul de 90% evrei. La intrarea in primul lagar nazistii au postat un mesaj pentru oameni, si anume: Munca te Elibereaza, aici prizonierii veniti erau sortati si trimisi spre moarte, moarte prin chinuri cumplite. Auzind aceste fapte de la ghid am fost coplesit de durere, tristete, gandindu-ma doar la torturile pe care le-au suportat acesti oameni nevinovati si totodata simteam ura pe care le-o purtau nazisti anumitor natiuni, in special evreilor. La Auschiwitz II am vazut liniile de cale ferata, pe care alunecau trenurile mortii. Vagoanele cu detinuti intrau pana in incinta lagarului, iar dupa coborare incepea sortarea in doua coloane. Varstnicii, bolnavii si copiii erau trimisi direct in camerele de gazare si crematorii, iar cei apti de munca in baracile de lemn. Oamenii care erau eliberati nu se bucurau , nu plangeau, nu erau veseli, nu erau tristi, nu erau nimic, au fost atat de chinuiti, atat de dezumanizati si nu cred ca realizau ce li se intampla.De fapt nu cred ca mai sperau la altceva, decat la moartea, ca eliberare finala, eliberare de nenorociri si suferinta.Nici nu-mi pot imagina daca, dupa perioada petrecuta acolo si dupa ororile vazute si traite, oamenii respectivi au mai putut avea o viata normala.Am vizitat camerele unde traiau cei care erau considerati apti de munca. Chiar daca acum acestea erau goale, dupa spusele ghidului mi le-am imaginat pline de sobolani, insecte, oameni bolnavi cu hainele neschimbate de saptamani. Dupa vizitarea lagarului Auschwitz impreuna cu delegatia Romaniei ne-am indreptat cu pasi repezi catre Birkenau locul unde au fost ucisi cei 1 milion de evrei. Acolo am asistat la discursurile unor oameni in varsta, care au luat parte la holocaust, iar cel mai mult mi-a captat atentia povestea unui evreu, al carui tata a fost omorat de catre nazisti deoarece nu voia sa coboare din tren fara desaga sa cu carti de rugaciuni. Acest om a reusit prin povestea sa, sa-mi transmita sentimentele sale de durere si tristete , am putut trai alaturi de el momentul despartirii de tatal sau mult iubit. Dupa parerea mea acest loc este foarte mult incarcat emotional si poate atinge inima oricarui om deoarece aici s-au intamplat lucruri cu adevarat tragice si raman in sufletul tau.Este un loc in care oamenii nu se mai simt mandri de faptul ca sunt oameni.Este un loc creat pentru a aminti prezentului de teroarea trecutului. Este un spatiu in care omul este obligat sa recunoasca faptul ca omenirea poate crea monstri.Si ca acesti monstri nu mai trebuie treziti niciodata. Ca o concluzie, ma simt nevoit sa aduc aminte un citat care se afla in primul bloc care se viziteaza : Cei care uita istoria sunt condamnati sa o repete(George Santayana)

March Of The Living People

On April 8, I participated with several nations to March of the Living People and visited AuschwitzBirkenau complex. This complex consisted of three concentration camp where they were exterminated by the Nazis more than 1 million people of which 10% Polish and Gypsy and the remaining 90% Jews. On entering the first Nazis concentration camp have posted a message to people, namely "Work sets you free" here prisoners were sorted and sent to death, or death by excruciating pain. Hearing these facts from the guide I was overwhelmed with grief, sadness just thinking tortures they endured these innocent people and also felt they hated Nazis wore some nations, especially the Jews. At Auschiwitz II I saw railways which slipped "death trains". Held in wagons to camp inside and after descent began sorting into two columns. Elderly, sick and children were sent directly to the gas chambers and crematoriums and those able to work in wooden barracks. People that were released do not, do not cry, they were not happy, not sad, they were nothing, they were so dehumanized and tortured, so do not think they realized what they are actually happened.Actually I do not think hoping for something but death as the final release.I can not imagine that those people have never had a normal life.We visited the rooms where people live who were considered able to work. Even now they were empty, according to my guide I imagine full of rats, insects, people sick with the same clothes for weeks. After visiting Auschwitz with the Romanian delegation we turned the corner to Birkenau where people were killed 1 million Jews. There I witnessed the speech of elderly people who took part in the Holocaust, most caught my attention the story of a Jew, whose father was killed by the Nazis because he did not want to leave the train without his bag of prayer books. This man was able to convey my feelings of sadness and pain, I could live with him when separation from his beloved father. In my opinion this place is very emotionally charged and can touch the heart of every man because there happened things really tragic and remain in your soul. Is a place where people no longer feel proud that they are people.Is a place created to remember this past of terror. It is a place where man is forced to recognize that humanity can creat monsters. And that these monsters do not have woken up again. In conclusion, I feel compelled to remember a quote that was in the first block that view: "Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it" (George Santayana) by Vlad Andrei Staicu
